More durable than any other mtb pedal...
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
More durable than any other mtb pedal I know of. Even though I am an Egg Beater rider, I have to concede that on really rocky aggressive terrain I would prefer these. They are virtually bash-proof. I had an older SPD for a long time before switching to Crank Brothers. I feel like the SPDs have a crisper engagement, but the Egg Beaters' softer "click" is ingrained into my riding now.
Down side is they don't have Egg Beaters' 4-sided engagement, and probably don't shed mud as well.
